MEMBERS DOING GOOD Photo courtesy of Olympia Moving & Storage Olympia Moving & Storage Cheers on Special Olympians SEPTEMBER | OCTOBER 2016 Olympia Moving & Storage employees help unload buses and move luggage into the dorms at the 2016 Special Olympics Massachusetts Summer Games. Direction 26 When the athletes of Special Olympics Massachusetts arrived at the Summer Games at Harvard and Boston universities in June, they were greeted by the professional movers of Bostonbased Olympia Moving & Storage, who cheered the teams as they pulled in before unloading the buses and moving them into their dorms for the weekend, bellhop-style. The move-in to Summer Games is just one part of Olympia Moving & Storage's role as the official logistics sponsor of the event. This is the Boston moving company's fourth year donating services to the competition for athletes with intellectual disabilities. More than 2,000 Special Olympians across Massachusetts went to Boston to compete in sports including track and field and aquatics. The event strives to promote the athletes' abilities instead of focusing on disabilities, and encourages their health. "Our movers look forward to greeting the athletes at Summer Games each year," said Michael Gilmartin, president of Olympia Moving & Storage. "During our years of sponsorship with Special Olympics Massachusetts, we've found that the athletes' determination and positive attitudes inspire our team." "Special Olympics Massachusetts is grateful to the great staff of Olympia who volunteer their time to give our athletes a great weekend every June, and for all they do year-round to support our program," said Matt Ruxton, vice president of sports at Special Olympics Massachusetts. "Their staff is willing and ready to do anything to make our events go as easily and smoothly as possible." In addition to athlete move-in, Olympia Moving & Storage provides equipment transportation, move-out and break-down assistance to the Summer Games. The donation is part of the company's year-round sponsorship of Special Olympics Massachusetts. Last year, the Boston moving company donated more than $50,000 in cash and logistics to the organization.
